Here are Today’s images.




















































TODAY is a weekly jewel box of seemingly random, yet thoughtfully selected, images. At times tender, wicked, nostalgic, amusing, and dazzling, each edition is presented without narration, editing or explanation by its author, designer Eric Baker. "It all began as a goof. One day I sent a good friend about 50 random pictures of cheese. I don't know why, but to me cheese is funny, perhaps it is the word itself and its various connotations. Eventually I began looking closer, or should I say broader at 'things'. Things lost on the fringes...ordinary, odd, beautiful things. Esoteric images, old diagrams, typography, cartography — visions of a once promising but now extinct future."

Editor's Note: All images link to their original source and are copyright their original owners.

I would love to see the images on that View Master reel. It says it's from Six Flags over Texas and it's titled Mexicans and Confederates! I'm sure anything on it would be very politically incorrect in this day and age. And rightfully so. But I'm so curious!

Bizarre synchronicity: I just saw an actual print of today's main image (Vignelli flag) on the wall in the corridor of Stanford Hospital. It has an interesting story, which was printed on the accompanying tag.

This poster celebrates not a melting pot, but the lively interaction of the different ethnic groups that make the United States.
